    Real Sugar

    REAL SUGAR

                                   f.t.talton/Corrina Jo Music/ASCAP

     

    Sittin’ here thinkin’, what should I eat?

    What should I put on my plate?

    Is that paradoxine hydrochloride

    or is it mononitrate?

     

    I can’t believe what I read at the grocery store

    I can’t pronounce the words on the label

    Nobody knows when the real thing changed

    But, I won’t stand for that stuff on my table

     

       I want real sugar, I don’t want none of that other

       I want real bread with real butter

       Sho nuff stuff, no messin’ round

       I don’t want my real world watered down

     

    Help me understand, help me make some sense of it

    My head is shaking and it’s starting to ache

    My eyes are burning, there’s ringing in my ears

    I won’t eat nothin’ that lasts a hundred years

     

       I want real sugar, I don’t want none of that other

       I want real bread with real butter

       Sho nuff stuff, no messin’ round

       I don’t want my real world watered down

     

    What should I, what can I, what will I eat?

    The list gets shorter every day, every week

    High fructose corn syrup, yellow #5

    Polysorbate 60, genetically modified

    I want real sugar, I…sugar,

    Unadulterated, granulated sugar

     

    T. Talton…vocals, electric rhythm guitar/ Kelvin Holly…wah-wah guitar

    Billy Earheart…electric piano/ David Hood…bass/ Bill Stewart…drums

    Brad Guin…sax/ Ken Watters…trumpet

     

    Recorded: July 18, 2014 @ Gintown Studio, Graysville, Al.

    Distant Light

    DISTANT LIGHT

                                                    f.t.talton/Corrina Jo Music/ASCAP

     

    I can see it in the distance

    A guiding light, a light I’ve always seen

    It has shown me where I’m going

    And it has shown me where I used to be

    For so long I had no clue

    But, now I see, that distant light is you

     

    Brightly shining, like the sun glares

    Sometimes glowing, like the moon we share

    It keeps me moving in forward motion

    It’s like sailing an endless ocean

    Now I know what I never knew

    Yes, now I know that distant light is you

     

    Carry me away, take me every day and night

    Show me how to love like you

    I do believe it’s right

    And I believe you are that distant light

     

    I can see it in the distance

    A guiding light, a light I’ve always seen

    For so long I had no clue

    But, now I see that distant light is you

    Yes, now I see that distant light is you

    My, O, My

    My, O, My

                                 F.t.talton/Corrina Jo Music/ASCAP

     

    My, O, My,

    Nothin’ but lazy sky, nothin’ but,

    You and I floating in the blue

    My, O, My, nothin’ but you and I

     

    Day is done,

    Living life, two as one

    Living life, you and I

    Spinning round the sun

    Day is done

    Living life two as one

     

    My, O, My,

    Nothin’ but lazy sky, nothin’ but,

    You and I floating in the blue

    My, O, My, nothin’ but me and you

    My, O, My, nothin’ but lazy sky

    Day is done

    Living life two as one

NOTES
This is Tommy Talton’s fourth release from Hittin’ the Note Records. He is at his finest when reflecting on life, love and social issues. As a wordsmith his lyrics are as timeless as the melodies he creates. As a guitarist he has an exquisite sound that is totally his own. While many of his songs go deep and are reflective, he is not above bawdy humor on occasion. Listen to the lyrics well and you will pick up on some of the cleverness that is ever present but usually understated.

The 11 original songs on this album are each unique - different time signatures, different keys, different genres of musical styles - but they all have that down home Talton sound. It's a real pleasure listening to Tommy's excursions - from his home base of Southern roots music to Sgt. Pepperish Beatles to country into raw, Zeppelin type surf music - these songs are wonderful gifts to be enjoyed time and again.

Tommy Talton is a familiar name to many, especially fans of ’70s Southern rock. Talton figured heavily into that part of music history co-founding the band Cowboy, discovered by none other than Duane Allman, who, as legend has it, banged on their door at 7am one day and asked to hear some songs. He then recommended them to Capricorn label owner Phil Walden, who sent Allman Brothers producer Johnny Sandlin to check them out; Sandlin ended up producing several Cowboy albums for Capricorn. Cowboy was recently chosen as one of the Top 10 Country Rock Albums of all time by About.com. (countrymusic.about.com/od/top10lists/tp/Top-10-Best-Country-Rock-Albums.htm) Tommy has played guitar with the likes of Gregg Allman, Bonnie Bramlett, Dickey Betts, Kitty Wells and Clarence Carter in addition to his own band. He's still adding to the rich tapestry of Southern music, and truly is at the top of his game.
